Anyone working within a secure area of a Port, Ship or offshore oil and gas facility is required to display an identification card known as a Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC).
The MSIC is a nationally consistent identification card which confirms that the holder has met the minimum background checking requirements to work in a maritime and/or offshore security zone.
An MSIC is NOT an access control card, and possession of an MSIC does not provide the right of entry to any facility within a maritime security zone.
Access to maritime security zones is managed by the Maritime Industry Participant (MIP), or facility operator.
MULTICARD has been approved by the Department of Infrastructure as an authorized Issuing body.
Only authorized Issuing Bodies may issue an MSIC.
